Self-Care for Child Welfare Professionals: Avoiding Burnout

March 16, 2012

Self-Care for Child Welfare Professionals: Avoiding Burnout
Tina Sills, Trainer, Child Welfare Training Institute, Michigan Department of Human Services

Friday, Mar 16 at 9:00 AM EDT – Register

Target audience includes attorneys working in child welfare, Child Protective Services personnel, and foster care case workers for the Michigan Department of Human Services, tribes, and private agencies.

This half-day workshop is designed to help child welfare professionals identify the behavioral, psychological, and physical symptoms of their personal and professional stressors. Professionals in this field are intimately exposed to the grief and loss that children experience. The workshop presenter will discuss tools for managing stress by recognizing how our personal needs are met by the work we do, setting clear boundaries, and committing to the goal of self-care. Participants will have opportunities to identify their own signs and symptoms, to exchange ideas with others, and to problem-solve on how to reduce stress and increase well-being.
